It is difficult enough on Epic to work out what 'gapers' & 'newbies' mean - never mind words like 'rain cheque'. I still have no idea whatsoever what 'jong' means. I suspect that even if I knew it would be unlikely to feature in my future vocabulary. That in itself would prevent me from engaging the mandatory flame-war type arguments on TGR.
There is also an assumed knowledge of popular beat combos and the latest fashions which I do not have.
On Epic, some old git will occasionally refer to the Grateful Dead.
Occasionally a younger individual will refer to the ....err... Grateful Dead.
At least I know who the Grateful Dead are.
